About the Book
Barlowe Theater stole the life of Greta Mercy’s eldest brother during its construction. Now in 1915, the completed theater appears every bit as deadly. When Greta’s younger brother goes missing after breaking into the building, Greta engages the assistance of a local police officer to help her unveil the already ghostly secrets of the theater. But when help comes from an unlikely source, Greta decides that to save her family she must uncover the evil that haunts the theater and put its threat to rest.
Decades later, Kit Boyd’s best friend vanishes during a ghost walk at the Barlowe Theater, and old stories of mysterious disappearances and ghoulish happenings are revived. Then television ghost-hunting host and skeptic Evan Fisher joins Kit in the quest to identify the truth behind the theater’s history. Kit reluctantly agrees to work with him in hopes of finding her missing friend. As the theater’s curse unravels Kit’s life, she is determined to put an end to the evil that has marked the theater and their hometown for the last century.
Jaime Jo Wright’s Books Will Mesmerize You With . . .

In My Opinion
I have yet to pick up a book written by Jaime Jo Wright that I haven’t loved. Wright excels in twisty plots that keep you guessing as to what is going on while staying true to Scripture.
In her latest release, The Lost Boys of Barlowe Theater readers are introduced to a theater filled with mystery, a group of lost boys in the past, one lost woman in the present, and a ghost hunting show that features both a psychic and a skeptic. If that sounds like a lot, it is, but Wright effortlessly pulls the reader into the story and immerses them in the mysteries that take place within the theater.
You will not regret the time spent reading this book and will be ready for the next eerie atmospheric read from Wright as soon as you have finished The Lost Boys of Barlowe Theater.
